On Linux, a good place to start with modules is to look at what's available directly from your distro.

That way you can ignore cpan and just install them using your package manager and it will handle all the dependency issues. There's usually lots of modules just ready to install, and it's a indication that those modules are likely to work and be useful. When I'm looking for a new module I always start by checking the distro first. I'm not sure what's out there for windows though (maybe some else will comment?).

[GrandFather]: It's a good day end here Corion. The start was somewhat less than average!
[Corion]: GrandFather: All's well that ends well? ;)
[GrandFather]: I'm fighting with a third party device our software is to support. The documentation for the device's SDK is quite a lot less than average and most of today was spent ...
[GrandFather]: discovering that one of the sensors for the device lies about the gain range it is using!
[GrandFather]: However, by the end of the day I had discovered its deceptions and now have it working correctly, so yes, all's well that ends well. :-D
[Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, (hardware) APIs - I have a similar situation with Chrome and its API... It is fairly underdocumented and I guess I have to hunt...
[Corion]: ... down supposedly working code to find out what I'm supposed to do
